Winter Encampment

Reenactors, Hupp's Hill

Several Civil War sites here in Virginia featured "Civil War Christmas" events such as this one on Hupp's Hill near Strasburg. It was modest as reenactments go but the site has only existed for a short time in it's current form as part of Cedar Creek Battlefield.

The inclusion of women in camp life is realistic because wives often visited when an army stayed in one place for a while.
